Take the Entrepreneurial Journey Together
We know that starting a business that makes a positive change in the world isn’t easy, and the path can be lonely. But, you don’t have to be alone in your journey. When you join our accelerator programs, you become part of a community of peers.
When you join our courses and classes, you start as part of a cohort that moves through the same business development processes together. Through group activities and weekly peer mentoring calls, you receive encouragement, feedback and support from your peers to help you move past your fears and doubts, and stay on track in building your business.
As an accelerator participant, you have the opportunity to join our online social network. You can tap into a community of extraordinary people, skills, and resources. Our online social network makes it easy for you to discover the abundant skills and resources in our community, so that you can connect with the people you need to build your business.
We convene bi-monthly community mixers that bring together participants across all our programs to unwind and form new connections. In addition, we host an annual holiday party, including vendor opportunities where participants can show off their products, services, and artistic talents.
Our Alumni Network provides graduates of our programs with an ongoing connection to the Uptima community. Alumni Network members have access to monthly advanced training workshops to help you refresh your business plans and gain additional skills to grow your business and community impact, as well as discounts to our business advising services and special offers from our partner network.
